So to be completely honest, I sort kind of thought I 'might' buy a planer today on my errands. But I really didn't know for sure.
Saw the DW 735 on a bunch of places online for 649. So Figured I'd go to WoodCraft and see if there was anything I needed. Well, It's a good news bad news sort of thing. Apparently the woodcraft in town is going out of business. I don't like seeing that happen. Friendly folks, nice place to shop.
But, all power tools were 20% off, and all power tool accessories were 30% off. And wouldn't you know it. Sitting right there was a DW735, the mobile base, and the extension tables. Well I had no intention of buyin the base, as that just seemed too expensive, but at 30% off, Well, what could I say...
Whats even better is when I got home and carefully explained how it was ON SALE and my old one was, well, old, I got away with it completely!
So I'm glad I got the mobile base. I would have had to build one anyway. This thing is pretty heavy and unwieldy, more so than my old delta anyway.
On the way home stopped by Lowes and they had the DW735 for 599, so I'm glad I got it on sale for 519. I've seen refurbs online for 500. So maybe not a great deal, but not a bad one either I figure.
